Mission: The Emergency Planning Office mission is to create a safe, secure and “disaster-resilient” Akwesasne through prevention, preparedness, response and recovery.

The Emergency Planning Office goal is to prepare Akwesasne to respond to, recover from and mitigate against natural and man-made emergencies and disasters. By achieving this goal the Emergency Planning Office works with local, state and federal agencies. We provide assistance in writing standard operating plans, training and exercises for our seniors, families and youth.  We promote Emergency Preparedness through wellness days, seniorama, public service announcements and the Tribal newsletter, Kawennì:ios.
